Renowned for its exclusivity, Chelsea is studded with glittering galleries and refined dining spots. And this is where you’ll find Empire View – a home at the pinnacle of elegance. Dressed in creamy whites and glamorous golds, there are plump sofas draped with luxurious fabrics and furs, and oversized art adorns the walls. But with decadently tall windows you might find your attention wanders beyond these inner embellishments – head out onto one of the two balconies for dizzying views of Manhattan’s skyscrapers and roof gardens.
Masters of the realm
Your hosts are art collectors who enjoy holding shimmering gatherings in their lofty home. They keep their calendars full of art events, and they’re in the perfect neighbourhood to do so.
Empire View's contemporary style is spiced with regal touches, from the studded French armchairs and velvet furnishings, to the purple pool table fringed with gold. The bedrooms sparkle too, with metallic accents and wide mirrors, while the bathroom gleams just beyond with its stone-tiled bathtub and television.
And whether you choose to entertain in the grand sitting room, or spread a banquet out in the formal dining room, there's seating enough for the entire court.
There is a trundle bed in the second bedroom which can be set up for one or two people. It can also be converted to a king-size bed made up of two adjacent twin mattresses. Please let us know when you book if and how you would like it prepared.
Since the onefinestay photoshoot a queen murphy bed has been added to the second sitting room. We will be taking new photographs soon.
